I want to slow my aging

The growth of the human body ends at the age of 25, and the aging process begins immediately. To slow down or stop it altogether is a dream not only of scientists and philosophers who have been trying for centuries to find the “elixir of youth”, but also of each individual person. About a century ago, the science of gerontology arose, studying the biological, social and psychological aspects of human aging, its causes and ways to deal with it. A lot of scientific and pseudo-scientific theories of aging have arisen, over which whole gerontological institutes work, created in almost all countries of the world. There are a lot of theories describing the causes of aging – a change in the regulation of gene activity, a decrease in the synthesis of intracellular regulators of plasma membranes, a decrease in the length of telomeres (end sections of chromosomes), the concept of stress-age syndrome, etc. Continue reading

I want to lose weight

The topic of losing weight is, without exaggeration, one of the most popular topics in communication – both physical and virtual, and in all age groups. The inability of most people to observe moderation in food and to properly compose their own diet leads to a gradual (and sometimes quite fast) weight gain, which must be periodically “driven off”. Few manage to keep their weight at a constant level of a slim figure, and here heredity, family traditions in nutrition, own aesthetic views, lifestyle, and, of course, physical education play an important role. Unfortunately, some physical exercises cannot cope with the problem of excess weight, and it must be solved in conjunction with other measures.

There are a lot of recommendations on how to lose weight. You can “sew up” your mouth by sharply limiting the diet, as the great ballerina Maya Plisetskaya advised; you can completely stop eating for a while – the benefits of therapeutic fasting are undeniably proven. Continue reading

I am vegan

The modern classification of vegetarianism has been formed for more than 100 years, having gone from partial rejection of meat (flexitarianism), rejection of meat, but with the assumption of fish in the diet (peskarianism) to a complete rejection of all animal products, including milk and eggs. Currently, there are mainly two directions: veganism and lacto-ovolacto-vegetarianism. Veganism is the most severe form, including eggs and animal milk (except human breast milk for babies). As a rule, the path to veganism passes through first of all awareness of the ethical problems of modern society and involves the maximum rejection of the use of products obtained through the exploitation and killing of animals.

The word vegan was proposed by the ideologist of this trend Donald Watson in the middle of the last century as an integral part of the first three and last two letters of the English word “vegetarian”. This term was introduced by the “Vegan Society”, founded by Watson in the UK. Continue reading
